A MAN has been given CPR after a fight erupted over a disabled space at a supermarket car park.

A 50-year-old man was rushed to hospital with serious injuries following an attack at a Tesco Express on Tuesday night. 

Police officers raced to the store in Nutshalling Close, Calmore having received reports of a GBH assault shortly after 5pm.

When they arrived they found the man from Totton unconscious. 

He was given urgent medical care by paramedics on the scene but later taken to Southampton General Hospital. 

According to a witness, an argument was sparked by a disagreement over a disabled parking bay.

The Tesco store was cordoned off with officers carrying out enquiries in the area until at least 7.30pm.

Police have since arrested an 18-year-old man from Calmore on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm and possession of a Class B drug. 

Meanwhile, two 19-year-old men, from Calmore and Hythe, were also arrested on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm.
All three remain in custody at the time of writing. 

A spokesperson for South Central Ambulance Service said: "We received a 999 call at 5.09pm on Tuesday with the caller reporting a person had been assaulted outside the Tesco Express on Nutshalling Close in Calmore. We sent an ambulance to the incident and one adult male was taken to University Hospital Southampton for further treatment."

Anyone with information that could help police with their investigation is urged to call 101.
